“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” — Mahatma Gandhi
“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature… If the NEXT CENTENNIAL does not find us a great nation… it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” — James Garfield, 1876 Speech on the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence
Trump’s Incumbent Endorsements
My friend Jim said this,
Yes, many people are unhappy with Trump’s endorsements of Ryan, McCain and Ayotte. However, Trump is ever the pragmatist and is keeping “his eyes on the prize.” He has zero interest in winning battles, but losing the war.
I expect he’ll do whatever needs to be done in order to become POTUS. Roughly speaking, I think that the “Primary Trump,” the “Presidential Campaign Trump,” and the “POTUS Trump,” will allow us to see three distinct facets of the man. A “one trick pony” he ain’t.
If you’ve read, “Art of the Deal,” you’ll understand exactly what Jim is saying.
My friend, Henry, commented,
Kel, what do you think would have been the reaction if last night the Donald had said the following, “I have been asked by the GOP establishment to endorse Paul Ryan, John McLame and Kelly Ayotte in their primaries for the sake of party unity. Since these people stand in opposition to most of what I and the American people stand for, I will not endorse them but rather endorse their opponents.”
I think the crowd would have gone bonkers, and he would have gained thousands more voters, and let the chips fall where they may. I do not think that his lacking the support of the GOPe traitors or a divided GOP party will harm his chances of being elected. Just my 2 cents. Plus, it would show once again that the Donald is a man of integrity and does not budge in that regard. We would all love it.
I agree with both of my friends, but my take is just a bit different. If all three of these globalist traitors are reelected, how do you suppose Mr. Trump would get them to work with him when he’s elected? They may still give him a hard time, because he is not in their globalist cabal, but you know they’d never help him at all without the endorsement.
Here is the video where Trump endorsed Ryan, McCain, and Ayotte. Skip to 1:12 and listen. Note that he had to read this portion of his speech. He rarely reads anything.
I want them all to be dumped, I hope their challengers win in a landslide, especially Paul Nehlen and Kelli Ward!
Legend Phyllis Schlafly thunders for Ryan’s ouster and says, “Get rid of him!” Link This 91-year-old woman attended the RNC Convention, and is all for Donald J. Trump!
As the dapper Roger Stone has said many times, much of the electorate really doesn’t care. We certainly do, but we are political animals; most of our dumbed down fellow citizens are more interested in sports, beer, and the latest music and movies.
We would all like a purist, and someone who did not have to play the political games, but for the sake of expediency and of gaining the prize, Trump takes them all on and then brushes them aside.
Behind the scenes, Trump’s people are working to elect the challengers. In Arizona, the third person spoiler has dropped out, and now the primary is between Kelli Ward and John McCain. So far, McCain cannot seem to get higher than 40% ratings. Go Kelli!
Bottom line, Mr. Trump does have to keep his eyes on the prize, the rest is just a distraction. The war is against Hillary for the White House.
Democrats Endorse Trump
Ohio Democrat and former businessman, Ken Lanci, is backing Trump! He ran unsuccessfully for Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio in 2013. He had a life changing experience that he wrote about in a book entitled, Working for the Good of All.
On 5 August 2016, he was interviewed by Anna Kooiman on Fox Business. The life changing experience he had was a massive cardiac arrest. He said he died, saw the bright white light, saw the love of God and was, “Good to go.” Several hours later he woke up on a respirator and the rest is history. Ken said he didn’t need to come back, he was raised in Cleveland’s projects, had only a high school education, but a great family and a great community, and was helping a lot of local people, and learning to survive and thrive.
Ken Lanci answers a question from Anna regarding his support of Mr. Trump by saying, “Donald Trump doesn’t fully realize yet the plan God has for him.” He then talks about doubting Thomas who needed to see Christ’s hands and side to fully believe he was alive, and then he says, “When Donald Trump puts his hands on that Bible, the Hand of God will be there with him because there’s no man or woman, who can do the job without strong faith and the help of God.”
Muslims Endorse Trump
Now this just absolutely blows my mind. Louis Farrakhan has actually endorsed Trump, and what he says in this interview with Alex Jones, most conservatives would agree with. Yes, I know he’s a Muslim, and I know he called his people to kill white folks.
And we know other things that Farrakhan has said, that are anathema to the freedoms of all Americans. Yet, I would still urge you to watch this video because it’s surprisingly telling and it’s only 12 minutes long.
Civil Rights Leader Endorses Trump
Charles Evers, brother of slain civil rights leader, Medgar Evers, has endorsed Donald Trump for president. Although Charles Evers, 93, also has a storied history in Mississippi’s civil rights movement, he was also the state’s NAACP field secretary and the first black mayor in Mississippi post-Reconstruction. He became a Republican in 1980, and endorsed Ronald Reagan for president that year.
Evers said, “I haven’t seen any proof of Trump being a racist. All of us have some racism in us. Even me.”
This is a righteous and decent man, a man who needs to be lauded for seeking truth.
Losers who Were #NeverTrump
The adamant #NeverTrump lawmaker, Rep. Tim Huelskamp, has lost to pro-Trump challenger Roger Marshall. Though Huelskamp is considered ‘tea party’ he was one of the most vocal anti-trump members of Congress and has close political ties to Senator Cruz. Does this surprise anyone????
From the AP on Huelskamp, “A doctor backed by agriculture and business groups ousted U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp Tuesday in a Kansas Republican primary race that focused on the tea party-backed incumbent’s battles with GOP leaders and criticism that he was too cantankerous to be effective.
Great Bend obstetrician Roger Marshall won the tough contest against Huelskamp in the 1st District, which spans western and much of central Kansas.”
Trump’s Campaign Donations
For the month of July, the Trump campaign raised $80 million, nearly $30 million more than in June! That’s an all-time record! However, the love fest between the DNC/MSM said absolutely nothing!
The Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post reported that Hillary Clinton’s campaign raised $63 million, and was praising the amount that they raised. Bezos hates Trump, but he apparently can’t add or subtract, because Trump raised much more than Hillary.
Wonder why we never hear a word about it? It’s because the DNC and MSM are in bed together, and you can bet that if Hillary raised this amount, it would be on every station and every talking head would be yammering about it.
Paul Ryan is No Friend of Freedom
Paul Ryan warned large Republican donors this week that his chamber’s majority in Congress could be weakened this fall because of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency. Well, honestly Speaker Ryan, if Paul Nehlen wins, it will be wonderful to kiss your leftist backside goodbye.
Ryan says he’s worried about the Republican majority in Congress! What a joke. He’s so in bed with Obama that he should have a “D” behind his name rather than an “R,” but then there’s so danged many of them in Congress who are just like him, including John McCain.
Ryan issued the forecast at a private meeting with top contributors during the summit held in Colorado Springs by globalists and pro-Agenda 21 brothers, Charles and David Koch, The New York Times reports. These two multi-billionaires plan to spend more than $42 million on this election cycle to keep the GOP majority in the Senate. Their efforts include fully disavowing Trump, even if it could distance his core voters, and developing ads that distinguish GOP candidates from Trump. These Marxist globalists do not want the status quo to change. Link
McCain Should Retire
Surely by now we all know about McCain and his extreme leftist leanings, not to mention his wife and daughter’s leftist activities. But that aside, McCain took the side of Sharia promoting Khizr Khan rather than standing by America’s Republican choice for president. By now, everyone knows what Khizr Khan really is all about and what a blatant traitor to his son’s sacrifice this man became. Why? Because he’s promoting someone who will allow Muslims to overtake America, and that someone is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Bill Koch Supports Trump
Another Koch brother is endorsing Trump and raising money for him. Bill Koch, a lesser known Koch brother, who with his brother Frederick, split from Charles and David years ago, is hosting a fundraiser for Mr. Trump. Bill Koch plans to host a private fundraiser at his Cape Cod, Mass. home. Tickets for the event will range from $2,700 a person to $50,000, depending on commitment-level of supporters. Link
Supporters and Detractors
Here is a long list of those who endorse Mr. Trump, yet it is not complete.
By now we all know those who are against him, and we should take notice that those very same people do NOT have the interests of the American people in their hearts or minds. Those who are against Trump, and I’m not just talking about Ryan, Kasich, Cruz and other top dogs, but the likes of Bilderberger Irving Kristol, Ron Paul, Tom Sowell, Brent Bozell, Erick Erickson, Club for Growth’s pro-amnesty David McIntosh, Michael Medved, Cliff Kincaid, controlled-opposition Heritage Foundation’s Ed Meese, Cal Thomas, and other so-called “conservatives.” Excuse me, but man’s best friend doesn’t deserve to be equated with these globalist toadies. My apology to toads.
The word “conservative” loses its meaning when applied to this ilk. These people are no more conservative than Feinstein or Schumer. They are the neo-conservative Trotskyites, or slow Marxists…and by now, many Americans have caught on to them. Remember too that the media is all owned by leftists, so stop listening to their lies.
Donald J. Trump rallies are still huge, while Hillary suffers to even fill the seats. So take heart folks! The man of the people is still the front runner, and we desperately need him to lead our nation. Pray for him and his family.
